Add a splash of creativity to your videos by using the Movie Maker's Kit II from Lensbaby. At the core of the kit, which is all packed into a custom Nanuk Case, is a Composer Pro II sporting a cinema-standard PL mount. This allows for direct compatibility with a vast array of professional video cameras. Alongside of this version is a Composer Pro II for Canon EF, a great choice for Canon's popular line of video-shooting DSLRs. The advantage of these lenses is their ability to accept any optic from Lensbaby's Optic Swap System, such as the Sweet 35, Sweet 50, Edge 50, and Edge 80 included here. The Sweet series offers a spot of selective focus which users can move around using the 15° of tilt provided by the Composer Pro II while the Edge series creates a thin slice of focus, providing a ton of possibilities for adding emphasis to your shots.
